Any idea when we can see our doctors again face to face? now that theyve got the urgent matter of the public being allowed to go to snooker matches perhaps we can see medical patients next? my health is nearly as important as snooker lol

This is truly and utterly appalling. Remember it any time the Tories claim to be the party of patriotism and for military veterans.

I went for the Monster Raving Loony Party's Incredible Flying Brick's policy on abolishing gravity. For too long gravity has held us back. We must fight to take back control and reclaim our sovereignty over fundamental forces. 107 other people in Hartlepool agreed with me.

Astonishing how Brexit seems to have hurt Labour (in Hartlepool, anyway) whereas the shambolic stop-start lockdown policies (which - avoidably - killed thousands of people ) has left Boris untouched...

...or maybe not so surprising when you look at the papers for the last couple of days, making it look as if England have won WW3 against France in Jersey (the truth is far more complicated than some 'win' for England, if anyone cares to research the matter)... this fuss kicked off just before the elections.

Was that a coincidence? I tend to think it wasn't.

They no longer care about the working class? Most of their policies in the last election and the things they’ve proposed when in opposition have been about helping the working class, something the Tories will never do, save for a few token gifts. The results so far today have only cemented my opinion that if Wales wants a left wing government that will help the working classes in the next decade, we’ll only get it through independence.

Unlike the Tories?

Look at the absolutely huge contracts awarded to their cronies over COVID - most of which were totally messed up by those private companies. That's how much they care about how they spend public money - they just see it as an opportunity to transfer taxpayers' money to their own mates. 

Come on!


Or just Google 'Private Eye', and take a look at their special report entitled 'Revolving Doors'.

(No party has a monopoly of good guys or bad guys (or gals) - but the current Tories are especially corrupt and obnoxious.)

Quite right.

If England want to go down the route of being dominated by Daily Heil thinking, good luck to them - I seriously believe that Scotland will be independent in 10 years or so. I do hope we go the same way, rather than be absorbed into the London octopus....

The party of the woking class?

I actually have no clue what this whole "woke" thing is about. What do people mean about it, particularly why do they dislike and even hate it so much? Is it over-prominence, high priority of issues faced by ethnic/other minorities (sometimes very small) in policy so the majority don't think it applies to their own situation/concerns/issues? Is it referring to a level of hyper-sensitivity that social media post-political correctness has brought us?

It’s a word whose definition usually changes depending on what side of the political spectrum you fall on (not to generalise, there will be exceptions).

It’s official definition in this context is “ “originally: well-informed, up-to-date. Now chiefly: alert to racial or social discrimination and injustice”.”

It has, I think, been weaponised slightly by aspects of the right wing such as that lovable rogue Laurence Fox and affable easy going fella Toby Young. They tend to use it as a stick to beat anyone who uses it or aspires/seems to be ‘woke’, and they use it as a way to mock people who they believe to be “white knighting”, part of “cancel culture” or “victim culture”.

For me, being “woke” is noticing that there are groups of people that have/do had it worse than others for a long time, and trying to do something about it, or raise awareness of it.
